    I tried using µTorrent a few days ago. Worked fine for a bit, but then the downloading stopped. The little orange triangle at the bottom of µTorrent, when I put my mouse over it it says "No incoming connections. Unless the icon turns green it could indicate a problem with your network configuration". I have my firewall turned off and temp. internet files cleared, possible solutions I found in other threads, but still no luck, nothing happens. I changed some settings that user lwf- posted in THIS thread. The settings were:

    Global number of connections: 1024
    Max number of connected peers per torrent: 128
    Number of upload slots per torrent: 28

    With these settings µTorrent has started to download again for a short time, then trickles to a stop after about 5 min.
    I just exited and then opened utorrent again and this is where i'm at.(If it helps)
    1. DHT:243 nodes
    2. D: 11.8 kB/s
    3. U: [92K] 42.7 kB/s

    Now while I was just typing that, the orange triangle has changed to a red circle and it now says "Not connectable. A firewall/router is limiting network traffic. You need to open a port so that others can connect to you". But now it's downloading faster than when it was an orange triangle. Number 2 has shot up to 52.7ish kB/s.....i'm really confused:confused:

    What version router is it? Plus, do you know if your ISP is throttling BT connections?

    Try using preset µTorrent connection settings using Speed Guide: Options > Speed Guide. Note the connection type in Speed Guide refers to broadband upload bandwidth.
